With the help of wine importing friends, and local restaurants and brewery’s, our first Holiday Open House at Highfield was a great success!
This past Saturday, we invited WineCollective, Tannic and Highfield customers, members and supporters to join us for an afternoon of wine tastings. We’d like to thank those who offered their time and donations and even more, those that came for a visit!
Our Holiday House featured 9 different WineCollective & Tannic favourites including Joseph Mellot Le Tronsec, Pierre Amadieu Grand Romane and Empordàlia’s Verdera Negre thanks to Jason and Evolution Fine Wines.
Scott from Redback Wines poured Les Anges Chardonnay and the delicious Les Terriades Rosé D’Anjou, which was a huge hit. The rosé nearly sold out and only 3 bottles are remaining in store!
Plaid Cap Imports poured the long time favourite, Gelso Nero and Albet i Noya’s Lignum Blanc, while the lovely Deb at Cellar Door poured Dictador Rum & Colombian Gin – now available at Highfield!
We at WineCollective also poured Schug Estate’s Sauvignon Blanc and the Konzelmann Pinot Noir recently featured in November.
Every guest also received a gift bag, filled with goodies and special deals from our Open House sponsors Chef Bar and LDV Pizza Bar. LDV also donated pizza and bruschetta to nibble on during the tastings!
A big thanks to Village Brewery for their donation of a raffle prize which included free tour passes and of course, beer!
All of the wines poured at our Open House are still available on the WineCollective online store and in Highfield! Thanks again to all who participated – we look forward to our 2016 Holiday House!
